Visitors to the Canary Island of Gran Canaria may be forgiven for thinking that it is a non-stop party island. The recent successful vote in Ireland for equal marriage, the Eurovision Song Contest and Maspalomas Pride have created an atmosphere of one …


Children enjoying one of many ZIP Rides

During the first week of it’s operation over 5000 people flocked into the Elche Multiadventure park far exceeding any expectations.

Director Rafael Garrido said he was inundated with compliments from visitors adding that “It’s been incredible, during the weekend the park was absolutely full of people, exceeding all of our expectations.”

This activity park, which opened last Thursday, has eight circuits of zip lines and rope bridges. It is intended “for the enjoyment of participants of all ages,” so much so that, one of the visitors who dared to plunge from the heights was an 80 year old woman. She said that if she lived a little closer to Elche she would use the park more often as she thoroughly enjoyed her day.

The attractions include several circuits of zip lines, classified by age and difficulty, and a TriAction Tower, a unique construction in Spain, more than 20 meters high, intended for all kinds of climbing games which sees users exiting by way of a 200 meter zip line through the park between the palm trees.

There is also a 2000 sq mtr artificial lake and a pier for a relaxing boat ride. The lake enjoys a unique purification system based on a natural salt treatment that filters, cleans and purifies the water. There is also a area chill out intended for holding all kinds of events, an area where visitors can practice archery and a “laser camp ‘.

In addition of course a wonderful botanical garden setting which enjoys row upon row of palms. There are also canals, ponds, a visitor reception centre, cafeteria and meeting rooms.

The park opens to the public on weekdays, Monday through Thursday, from 17.00 to 22.00, and Fridays from five o’clock until midnight. On Saturdays and Sundays, the park opens from ten in the morning. During the school holidays the weekday hours will be extended.

Given the success of this first week, the intention now is to organize group visits from schools, clubs, businesses and societies during weekday mornings when the park would otherwise be closed. “Such groups will have much more freedom within the park”, said Garrido.

Currently, entrance to the park is absolutely free although visitors will have to pay between 3 and 14 euros for the use of the attractions.

A forced abortion imposed to a seven months pregnant woman, to meet the “one-child policy” has caused strong indignation in China.

The officials who ordered that termination of pregnancy, were arrested after the mother hung on Internet a spooky image of the fetus, totally covered in blood, lying next to her in the hospital bed, where Feng Jianmei, the 27-year-old mother forced to terminate pregnancy was admitted. In China some 400 million children have been killed through abortion to control overpopulation.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists, illustrious professional institution in the UK, has made a significant change in its guidance on the link between abortion and mental health.

The abortion leads to a significant danger to the mental health of women and the Royal College of Psychiatrists recommended guidance on these dangers to women seeking abortions. It encourages the production of publications that discuss episodes of desperation after an abortion because “there can be no informed consent, if adequate information is not provided.”

In 2008 the actress Emma Beck, a young British artist of 30 years, who had a twin pregnancy and aborted, committed suicide by hanging himself shortly. He left his relatives a pathetic letter: “Living is hell for me. I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum. I told everyone I didn’t want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies – they need me, no one else does.”

Given this and other events, the scholar Peter Saunders, general secretary of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said: “How can a doctor now justify an abortion for reasons of mental health, a reason cited for more than 90% of the more than 200,000 annual abortions performed in Britain? “

“A society that boasts of its social policies should better protect the defenseless and the defense of life is a ‘moral obligation’ that the government should support,” said Francisco Gil Hellin.
